For those who don’t know about Martha’s Vineyard, it has been a vacation spot for the black bourgeois off the coast of Massachusetts. Here’s what the Boston Globe had to say.

Following in the footsteps of Bill and Hillary Clinton, President Barack Obama may vacation this summer on Martha’s Vineyard, we’re told

The White House wouldn’t confirm the first family’s vacation plans yesterday, but word is the Obamas have rented a house for two weeks at the end of August in the East Chop neighborhood of Oak Bluffs.

Located on the northern tip of Martha’s Vineyard, Oak Bluffs has become something of an African-American enclave. Politician and pastor Adam Clayton Powell Jr., writer Dorothy West, and Massachusetts Senator Edward Brooke were all early homeowners, and celebrities such as Spike Lee and Oprah Winfrey are frequent visitors.

Ogletree, who has owned a place in Oak Bluffs for 15 years, has hosted Obama on several occasions. The first time was in August 2004, after the then-Illinois senator gave a rousing speech at the Democratic National Convention.

“He would tell you I misled him,” Ogletree said yesterday, laughing. “I asked him to just drop by [the Vineyard] and say hi, and then when he showed up there were all these really excited people there to meet him.”

Ogletree said Obama would likely use his time on the island to read, play golf, and spend time with his wife, Michelle, and the couple’s two girls, Malia and Sasha. “He’ll be Mr. Dad as opposed to Mr. President,” Ogletree said.
